    ...is a bigoted, offensive pejorative that has no place on this forum? Or is it permissible to use here? Thanks in advance.

    Zone 1 is the only place that doesn't allow insults and flaming. However, it is loosely moderated in Zone 2, and to my knowledge in Zone 3 (Flame Zone, Rubber Room, etc..) it is not even governed.

    It gives the uneducated a means of expression. Does nothing for civil discourse though.

    Sorry, but faggot is a word that can't be erased. Good grief, if the word 'faggot' si so bad, then one should really think hard about the consequences of being a faggot

    Conservatives that use that terrible word do enormous damage to their own movement.

    Is it worse than any other name used here such as libtard, trumpanze, dotard, orange assclown, racist, white bitch, white trash? Why is faggott more bigoted or offensive?

    Its use implies that there is something wrong with homosexuality and that the one being ridiculed, as well as an entire class of people, are seemingly subhuman. It doesn't belong in polite company. Would you say "Look at that faggot!" to a room full of your co-workers or at the supermarket? It's a disparaging, hateful term and it should not be used. By the way, I'm a white, heterosexual, conservative Christian.

    I don’t use the term faggot at all. I also don’t call trump supporters white trash! Do you?
